Local green thumbs begin community garden conversation

March 26, 2013

If you think growing a garden at 8,000 feet elevation is impossible, think again.

If you think you need to start seedlings indoors in April and plant them outside in late June in Mammoth and fence off the yard from deer and bears and it’s all just too much work so you might as well go to Vons, think again.

If you think you need a green thumb to grow your own produce in Mammoth, Crowley Lake, Walker, or Paradise, think again.

Bears, ravens adjust to new rules at water treatment plant

March 26, 2013

The Mammoth Community Water District Wastewater Treatment Plant is located on the edge of Jeffery pine forest and sagebrush scrub, a setting that provides the numerous wildlife in the area a banquet of alluring smells and a steady supply of fats and grease in the wastewater tanks. It is thus a it a popular spot for local animals, particularly bears and ravens.

These conditions present a unique and consistent challenge for district employee Rob Motley, plant maintenance and instrumentation supervisor at the district.
